VASHON ISLAND, Wash., September 18, 2013- Congratulations to Pueblo a Pueblo: Maternal Child Health and Education, for being the recipient of the July 2013 Making a Difference contest. Kerri and Miles of CoffeeTalk will now donate $1,000 for their cause.
The winner, Pueblo a Pueblo’s Maternal Child Health (MCH) program is designed to reduce the exceptionally high maternal and infant mortality rates among the T’zutujil Maya in Santiago Atitlan region. MCH creates a consistent, one-to-one partnership between international sponsors and Guatemalan families, giving mothers and their children crucial medical and education support.
The winner of the contest is determined by how many ‘clicks’ and ‘views’ each article receives. This year was the largest response ever and we hope that our readers will be inspired by these projects and inspired to contribute.
In second place was Just Love Coffee Roasters. Partnered with Waterstep, their mission, Beans for Streams, is unique in the sense that each cup of Just Love Coffee consumed goes back to provide clean water to those in need around the world.
In third place was Grounds for Health. They work with women in coffee regions to help stop and prevent cervical cancer with cervical cancer prevention programs.
